reader question of the week #2

reader question of the week #2:

"My husband and I both turn 30 this year- and I really want to plan something special for him/us. We are military, USAF, and have just moved- so we are away from friends and family. I'm sure we'll have some close friends nearby by the time our birthdays arrive, but I don't want to force a big party with a lot of people we sort-of-know and kind-of-like. I could really use some creative ideas to pull close friends and family together across the world to wish him/us a happy celebration. Here's a few things about us: 1) We met in Brussels while working for our church; 2) We have 2 kids- one boy, one girl; 3) He loves Bruce Lee, Arnold Schwarzenneger, Paul Rudd, movies, games; 4) I love running, sewing, Paul Rudd, games, violin; 5) We live in New Mexico, in the desert, now. Any help you could give us would be so appreciated. Thanks! -Dayna"
